Cow-a-bunga!

This story is making national news this morning and thought it would be a spring time moment to share. A black Angus cow in Montana is the proud mother of triplet calves delivered Monday.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports Cow No. 403 at Lance and Erika Chaney’s ranch near Manhattan gave birth to three, 40-pound calves. The calves — two females and a male — are all healthy.

Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine says the odds of a beef cow having triplets are one in 105,000 births, with longer odds that all three survive.

And Lance Chaney says the cow is nursing all of them, which he says is rare.

Chaney is a fourth-generation rancher who oversees about 300 Angus cows year-round and several hundred of their offspring each spring. He says the family ranch has had plenty of twins before, but never triplets.
